The Vice-Chancellor of the University of Port Harcourt (Uniport), Owunari Georgewill, has sparked mixed reactions online after insisting on dismissing a female student of the school over indecent dressing.
In a video sighted online, the VC was seen addressing the student about her choice of dress.
Georgewill asked the female student if she is comfortable in her indecent outfit, stressing that she is obviously naked in the outfit.
The student in response defended herself, saying she is not naked and was comfortable in the outfit.
The response infuriated the VC who asked school officials to collect her details including her matriculation number as he would dismiss her from the school.
According to him, such people with indecent outfits are not needed in school.
However, some netizens reacted to the video commending the VC while others frowned at him saying it is a university and not a secondary school.

I personally dress like that because I am a fashion influencer but that doesn’t change that I am also a student and should respect the rules and regulations. I didn’t even know it was the VC at first and that’s why I said I was comfortable with what I was wearing. But the VC was nice enough to let me go, we settled everything and he let me go with a smile on his face”
